The Senckenberg museum is one of the places to visit if you are in Frankfurt and it offers a wide variety of animals (birds, mammals, fish, etc) and also a nice collection of dinosaurs and fossiles. It also shows the evolution of mankind and the different habitats of animals in different continents. They also have excellent models of some animals... More

I have visited many museums throughout the world so decided to visit this specific natural history museum when in Frankfurt. It was easily located to from my hotel. The building it is housed in is beautiful from the outside. The museum layout is what was so disappointing though. It reminded me of museums back in the 1960s. It seemed as... More

The world known Senckenberg Society (many famous Germans like Goethe were members , me too <gr>) has a permanent exhibition in Frankfurt. It's about paleontology and evolution. You'll find complete skeletons of famous dinosaurs (triceratops, allosaurus etc) in the big main hall. Besides that there are also exhibitions of recent animals (complete whale skeleton etc.). Also all the discoveries in... More

The museum is wonderful for families with children. The day I was there was busy. Ticket was not expensive but everything in the museum was in German. Not one single word in English. I was unable to read the description on any of the fossils or in any other thing I was looking at. The staff speaks English and I... More

It's a natural history museum but we went for the dinosaurs and were not disappointed. There were plenty of prehistoric creatures to see as well as other fossils throughout history. Just when we thought we'd seen everything, there were more floors with even more items. The spider exhibit was another euro and well worth it. Very interesting!

I visited the museum with my family and the kids loved it. The different sections are very interesting and the items are nicely exposed. The site is well organised, no surprise we are in Germany, and the explanations are easy and also in English.

I went to this museum while stopping during a Hop-on Hop-Off bus tour. All I can say is that it's a very interesting museum, showing off everything about natural history, from animals to geological subjects. It's a wonderful place for children. However, most of the tags are in German and it's a pity not to know more about the exhibited... More
